First, sorry. I know I haven't been blogging much lately. I'm going to try to change that.
I will start with some ideas for getting the most of your money using your freezer.
I was rooting around in our freezer the other day and noticed some things in there that I thought would be some good tips to pass on as ways to lower waste and save money. Who doesn't want to do that? Maybe you know some of these tips, maybe you don't. And maybe you have others to share--so please do!
There are other things we do that aren't currently in our freezer: Mary Beth makes loads of basil pesto at the end of the season and we freeze it in ice cube trays--a great way to get a taste of summer in the midst of winter. In fact, ice cube trays are a great way to save lots of things for later. I sometimes freeze wine in trays to use later. Or chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. They come in little cans and you never need all of them. Give them a chop, measure out into an ice cube tray (in tablespoon-sized portions) and you have it whenever you need it.
So there you go--stop wasting food and money with some of these simple freezer tips. Again, if you have any to share, let me know!
